Robert Lewandowski described Bayern Munich’s trip to Camp Nou as the “perfect day” after the glowing striker scored twice in the Champions League 3-0 win over Barcelona.
Bayern kicked off their 2021-22 Champions League campaign with a complete victory at Barça thanks to a brace from Lewandowski and a first goal from Thomas Muller on Tuesday.
Lewandowski has scored in his last 18 appearances for Bayern, scoring 29 goals in a series that dates back to February in all competitions.
In the past three seasons since the start of the 2019–20 season, Lewandowski has scored 113 goals in 93 appearances for Bayern – 36 more than any other player in the big five European leagues during that period (Kylian Mbappe and Cristiano Ronaldo with 76 goals each. ).
“It’s always nice to be on the pitch and hear the UCL anthem with the audience. It’s a good feeling, ”Lewandowski said after the game.
Of course, the stadium was not completely full, but we hope that everything will be back to normal soon. “

Barcelona offered little forward and failed to shoot on goal, the first time they have posed such a mild threat in a Champions League match since at least 2003-04, according to Opta.
Bundesliga title holders Bayern have won the opening match in each of the 18 Champions League seasons with an aggregate score of 45-2.
“We can be satisfied with our performance. It was nice. We showed from the first minute that we wanted to win, “Lewandowski added.
“We were in control of the game, this was important. Barça have rarely threatened our goal. It was a perfect day. “
